Mr Tucker is a class act. I saw him perform at Oshkosh several years ago and after his performance he greeted the crowd with an autograph/ picture session. couldnt ask for a friendlier person.

The MOST important aspect of that video will go unnoticed by many. He says it twice. "I never get in the cockpit when I'm angry". That's a HUGE deal. I know of at least 2 pilots who crashed following angry shouting matches with people prior to flying. I can't say that caused the problem, but it certainly took their mental focus away from the task at hand.

While I don't care for Tucker's show so much, I absolute agree with his mental attitude 100%. He's EXACTLY the model for how you be successful at basically anything, including airshow flying. Matt Chapman is another guy who thinks and feels, and acts the same way.

This video shows who Sean D. Tucker is and what he stands for. Sean Inspired me into aviation when I was 10 years old when I first met him. Every year until now I went to two or three shows a year just to see him. My dad works for Oracle so we get VIP Chalet passes and I get to meet Sean and his awesome crew every show. We have gotten to know Team Oracle very well over the years, its is safe to say we have become good friends over the years. I have been flying with Sean in their Extra 300L 3 times and their crew member Brian Norris once, and I will never forget those flights and Sean says I should look forward to our flights in the future. Sean is the most amazing person I have ever met! There is no such thing as a bad attitude with him, he is what we should all be like and is a role model for pilots everywhere. Sean is my hero and my dream is to follow in his footsteps.

Inspiring. Not many like him! "I want to be the lightning rod that inspires someone... I am a student of the art form and the game... The search for perfection is in my heart." Good stuff.

I remember the first time I saw a 100cc plane 3D was back in '02 or '03. Mike Hurly out there with one of the Extras he kitted doing slow motion harriers around the field. I was inspired in that moment, and I have never been the same again. That's why I fly at local events and airshows. Maybe someone will see something they like and be inspired the same way I was.

I really like his phrase, "you can't be perfect, you can be excellent".
